GameShow about TV trivia that was Creator/{{MTV}}'s first venture out of music videos (and thus the very beginning of NetworkDecay to some). The premise was that host Ken Ober grew up addicted to game shows and longed to host his own, [[StartMyOwn so he set one up in his basement]] and bombarded contestants that dared to enter with questions about [[BreadEggsMilkSquick television, junk food, and threats to their well-being]]. The supporting cast was shockingly good for a low-budget cable show of the era and featured Creator/AdamSandler and Colin Quinn before they made it to ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''; Creator/DenisLeary before he developed ''Series/RescueMe''; actresses Creator/KariWuhrer and Alicia Coppola, who have worked consistently in film and TV since then; and future TV writer Rick Rosner.
